A completely failed comeback. This September 5 in Télématin, host Julia Vignali gave carte blanche to Alexandra Pizzagali, the face of humor, in the morning of France 2. Inspired by current events, the columnist chose to deal with a subject in her humorous post . But, his debut was somewhat hesitant after a technical problem prevented him from starting his column.
Far from being destabilized, comedian Alexandra Pizzagali managed to pick up the thread of her sketch and decided to discuss the Nice attack, the trial of which opened on Monday. By drawing a controversial portrait of Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel (the driver of the van which raged on the Promenade des Anglais on July 14, 2016), his performance turned into a disaster, suggesting a slight discomfort live on the set. A moment of embarrassment suddenly cut by advertising before the comedian can finish his column.
Faced with the outcry aroused on social networks, his employer France Télévisions reacted to the controversy by posting on Twitter. “The management of France Télévisions and the Télématin teams regret that a column with a humorous vocation rightly offended many viewers. We offer our apologies and express our solidarity with the victims of the Nice attack and their loved ones”, is it written on the social network.
Despite the failure of her first column, Alexandra Pizzagali preferred to put things into perspective by speaking on her Instagram page. In his publication, the comedian first returns to the technical problems that plagued his performance. “First direct, teleprompter problem, caught off guard, prostration which caused the delay”. Then the young woman explains why she was interrupted in her sketch. “And the advertisements being scheduled to the minute, they were sent before I could finish my column. So I did it right after”, assures the one who specifies that there is “zero censorship” from the chain.
The young comedian, who should officiate every Monday in the show, also thanked the Télématin teams “at the top of benevolence”. “Can’t wait for the second, unless a project falls on my face next week, a priori, it can only be better,” she quips before thanking her fans.
